and once again – daylight savings time……
‘I’m the type of person who tries to fall back asleep in the morning just to finish a dream.’
(not me, but I had the same face when looking in the mirror this morning)
ever have one of those mornings
when you wake up very suddenly
notice it’s not dark outside
like it always is
when you wake up to go to work
you text your work partners
panicked and feeling guilty
say you’ll be there asap
wondering why you didn’t hear your alarm go off
thinking about how you can get ready and do a make-over in 5 minutes
then begin to text your bosses to say the same
only to realize in the middle of typing
that it is
have to type again
to apologize for waking everyone up?
“forgive me if I sleep until I wake up. “

after a fun afternoon
and wonderful evening
spent visiting and playing
grandies are tired and tucked in
when suddenly the tears come
missing mom and dad
a story, Kleenex, hugs, a visit from the cat, and a goodnight call to mom
everyone settles in for the night
does it get any better than that?
“very little is needed to make a happy life.”
If your summer plans already include laying in bed all day, you may be the perfect fit for the Mattress Firm’s new job opening. The company is looking for a “snoozetern” to test mattresses at their Houston, Texas headquarters by sleeping in them.
The Mattress Firm’s intern will be paid to spend 30 hours a week lounging in bed this summer. Job duties include assessing “the optimal head and foot positions” for reading, eating, binge-watching, and of course, sleeping in bed. When they’re awake, the snoozetern will also be responsible for creating written and video content for Mattress Firm’s website and social media platforms.
The ideal candidate is 18 or older, has housing and transportation access in the Houston area, knows how to use video editing software, and is “passionate about sleep and comfort.” Mattress Firm will select three to five finalists out of the applicants to create a short video pitching themselves, and from those candidates one will be picked for the job.
To apply, head to Mattress Firm’s website and submit your resume and relevant information. But you’d better hurry: Applications are due May 3, and the intern will be selected by the middle of May.
“every morning is a battle between the superego and the id,
and i am a mere foot soldier with mud and a snooze button on her shield.”
